I went to this museum while stopping during a Hop-on Hop-Off bus tour. All I can say is that it's a very interesting museum, showing off everything about natural history, from animals to geological subjects. It's a wonderful place for children. However, most of the tags are in German and it's a pity not to know more about the exhibited... More

I am old enough not to enjoy this kind of museum. But it was good to spend some time in free time. It looked not that large buildings, but there were a lot of stuffs to see. The employees were perfectly kind too.

Went on a rainy Saturday. Museum is quite large. Not a lot of exhibits have an English translation, but still fun to look at. The dinos and mummies are very cool.

Very cool museum for anyone interested in natural history. Great place to take the kids. Was able to move about at a leisurely pace. Would be a good stop on a hot summer afternoon and you're tired of touring outside all day.

The Senckenberg has been an institution for the perfect museum's day when I was a kid, half a century ago. It is probably the best museum for prehistoric fossiles, dinosaurs, mummies, and all sorts of the history of nature of our planet. Your kids will have a blast, ours are there 25 times a year.

There are good exhibits, nice graphics and good facilities but with little translation this lacks international appeal. Under everything cannot be in multiple language but there are some in English but this seemed quite random. A radio translation is available but if the museum made wifi available more could use google translate as an alternative. Restaurant is good, table service... More

The Senckenberg Natural History Museum has a wonderful collection of specimens from around the world with well designed exhibits. Some of the specimens are hard to see and displayed in somewhat crowded cases, and could be updated a little bit so that lighting and better exposure made them easier to see, but the sheer amount of the rare and extinct...
